Girls are always trying to figure out how to apply foundation and you're probably no different. You picked out your shade and feel that should be enough for creating the perfect base for your makeup, right? Well, if you want a flawless finish each time, these four simple steps for perfect foundation can help you achieve the look you crave every application.
The first step could be one of the most important steps in creating completely flawless coverage. You will want to start with a fresh, clean slate with a quality facial cleanser and then follow-up with a soothing moisturizer that not only hydrates the skin, but also creates a silky, smooth canvas.
For some, this may seem like an added extra step, but for others, this is necessary in order to create a beautiful finish. A great primer offers so much by concealing large pores, evening out skin tone, filling in fine lines, and creating a smooth base for your foundation so you really get complete coverage. Understandably, primers may not be needed for casual wear, but for occasions where you want your skin to look model-perfect, a primer can do the job!
If you prepared your skin really well in Steps 1 & 2, then applying foundation in Step 3, becomes much easier. Some people have their favorite foundation brush or sponge to apply, while others find better control with their fingers. Whichever technique you prefer is the one that works best for you! Some tips to help you get a flawless application includes starting at the center of your face first, then applying lightly and outward towards your cheekbones and jawline, and fill in the remaining areas for overall complete coverage. Also be sure to fully blend for a natural finish.
Finally, your look is complete with a finishing touch of powder. This a wonderful way to keep your foundation in place, even out the skin-tone in certain areas and absorb any excess oil. A facial powder can also lock in a beautiful and smooth finish that will help your foundation last all day long.
Once you pick out your favorite products and create a simple routine for application, having near-perfection foundation becomes easier each time! Good luck!
